Don’t stroke the stone

I think this is like performance management. Oh look! Last quarter we hit our target! The future? No idea. Is it raining out?

Compare and contrast. In this process below we know that (whatever is being measured) is between 9.3 and 10.8 and that this will  be the same tomorrow and foreseeably after that unless there are fundamental changes to the system or inputs to the system.  This is a forecast that this indicator will continue between 9.2 and 10.8. It tells me what is happening now and in the future.

No need to stroke the stone.
